Presidential Website: Maithri Now Prefers Hindu Priests, China And Children To Buddhist Monks

The President of Sri Lanka Maithripala Sirisena has instructed his official web master to remove all four pictures on the presidential page’s slider that shows him posing only with Sinhala Buddhist monks and replace them with a set of new pictures that gives a more balanced outlook towards promoting of ethnic harmony and peace instead, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Maithripala webThe Presidential website now carries a picture of him with Hindu Priests, a picture of him in China on an official visit, two pictures of him surrounded by children and only one picture of him with the Sinhala Buddhist monks.

It is reliably learnt that after it was highlighted earlier by Colombo Telegraph, President Sirisena had received many complaints from his close advisors, that the previous set of photos portrayed him to be more of a President to the Sinhala Buddhists only, rather than to all the other ethnic groups that make up the rest of the country’s population.

Earlier Colombo Telegraph wrote a story on the President playing the ‘saffron’ card to keep his beloved Sinhala Buddhist folk happy.

Browsing through the same slider of the official Presidential website now reveals a set of five completely new images with two pictures of him surrounded by children highlighting the future of the country and a picture of him on an official state visit to China which highlights the country’s friendly international ties. Two other pictures also reveal himself, one with the Buddhist monks and one with Hindu priests portraying his support and stance towards racial harmony.

However the photograph introducing President Sirisena on his official Presidential website, which has in its background the cropped version of the national flag displaying only the lion holding a sword in its paw depicting the bravery of the Sinhala Buddhists, still remains.

It is still observed that other ethnic groups such as the Malays, Moors, Burghers and others that represents religious groups such as Islam and Christianity have been ignored completely still.

    Two Israeli tourists have been nabbed by police at Aruhambay (Potuvil) sea resorts for sitting on a sheet which had Buddha image printed on it.

    They bought the sheet in India and used it there earlier.

    The Potuvil police must be permanently sitting on their brain.

    Is it an insult to Buddha? Are those policemen true practicing Buddhists?

    They have nothing better to do. Most probably the policemen have nothing better to do. Or did they expect something else from the tourists?

      This is a lie. The two Israelis were arrested on charges of attempting to incite violence among the local Tamil community at Potuvil against the nomination of former President Rajapakse.

      Their hatred and determination to avenge Rajapakse for his long term help to the Palestinians is well known and they, together with the CIA and USAID are plotting against Sri Lanka now. Four US Generals came to meet with Ranil W on a confidential mission and the Military Attache at the US embassy met with the Army Chief of Staff on an unscheduled meeting. Meanwhile, Chandrika B is being coached by MI6 in London and Greece.

      Expect surprises before and after the elections.

      what if they used it as tolilet papers behind closed doors and wiped thier shit bottom?

      does the Sri Lankan law allow people to throw printed material with Budhha in the garbage bin.?

      perhaps their is a secrect service a special STF division to police all printed materail with Buddha on it.

      Beaware!

    True politics should keep away from Publicity with religion. It should be a private mater and not be used to gain advantage. The politics itself is a sin. Politics mingled with religion is greater sin.

    There are too many temples and vihare, Dagobas. The worship places ( money collecton and money wasting Places) population ratio is very high and the economy can’t sustain with this ratio > the bowl has to be larger and the benefactor must be more generous and wealthy. Establish more bowl making factories coined with genocide. The foreign remittance is wasted on unproductive buildings.

    Presidential Website: Maithri Now Prefers Hindu Priests, China And Children To Buddhist Monks

    “The Presidential website now carries a picture of him with Hindu Priests, a picture of him in China on an official visit, two pictures of him surrounded by children and only one picture of him with the Sinhala Buddhist monks.”

    The China bribes seen to be in action…

    MaRa MaRa Cahtu MaRa Amana MaRa Gon SiRa..

    Leopards don’t change their spots.

    Traitors don’t change their spots either.

    Through the grape wine…

    ‘Let traitor Maithri and corrupt Medamulana brute dig
    their own common grave’- a SLFP group and all other forces join UNP Front !

    We are happy to break a most welcome news report that would buoy up the presently depressed and disappointed people who were most ruthlessly and unconscionably let down by Polonnaruwe Pallewatte Gamaralalge Maithreepala Yapa Sirisena (who committed the biggest betrayal ever in history ),that all patriotic forces for good governance which contributed to the victory on 8 th January have decided this evening to join hands with the UNP as a common Front to rescue the nation that is right now most grief stricken in the wake of President Polonnaruwe Pallewatte Gamarala’s recent monumental record breaking betrayal.

    It is a well known indisputable fact that the incumbent president Gamarala Maithripala came to power after openly rejecting Mahinda Rajapakse regime as a most corrupt , murderous and perfidious administration which robbed the country of its assets in billions and billions of rupees. As the people clamored for a change for the better so Gamarala Maithripala promised that he would wipe out corruption , violence and frauds in the country including the Rajapakse family rule which has brought the country to the brink of total destruction.

    The destitute frustrated people who were economically routed rallied round Maithri the villager who made grandiose promises and gave them tremendous hopes. They therefore pinned implicit faith that this Gamarala Maithripala , a puritan or so he called himself who is making such grandiose solemn promises and pledges would fulfill their long awaited aspirations and hopes.

    Finally , he was elected as president not by his crooked , corrupt and criminal Medamulana parties , but by the common opposition fielding him as a common opposition presidential candidate during which process , the people and the political parties that backed him risked their lives and made supreme sacrifices

    Just as Gamarala Maithripala completed 180 days of his reign , lo and behold ! , the same Gamarala Maithripala did a 180 degree turnabout to make the biggest betrayal in history that put to shame even the Biblical Judas .That is he betrayed the very people , the people’s forces and the political parties that elected him to power , to once again join hands with the Rajapakse crooks , criminals and their den of thieves he viciously, openly and loudly condemned earlier on when he was ingratiating himself with the patriotic , pure and clean opposition parties and forces prior to elections.

    Now, in a salutray move ,all patriotic forces and parties , the monks, who left the JHU , its leaders , that is the JHU in its entirety ; all leaders of the SLFP who are pro good governance ; and a majority constitutiing the forces of Leftist parties including LSSP and Communist party are to contest the upcoming elections under a common , ‘United National good governance Front’ based on a momorandum of understanding to be signed by them with the UNP. It is significant to note that they are to contest under the elephant symbol .

    S.B Dissanayake , Rajitha Senaratne , Arjuna Ranatunge, M.K.D.S. Gunawardena , Hirunika Premachandra ,Sudharshini Fernandopulle ,Reginald Cooray ,Prasanna Solanga Arachi,and Karunarahne Paranavithane are the SLFPers who are walking out on and disdainfully rejecting Pallewatte Gamarala the local Judas ,to allow him to do whatever he wants with the corrupt brutal Rajapakses, after becoming aware they have both dug their own common grave. Though Sanath Jayasiriya too has consented to join , no decision has been taken yet , because the nomination list is already full.

    This group is throughly disillusioned and disgruntled wiith the SLFP because of the unholy illicit alliance formed. They have hence sought nominations through the UNP. Ranil Wickremesinghe the UNP leader has then directly contacted Gamarala Maithripala today to inform this group is joining with the UNP and they are being given nominations under it. Gamarala Maithripala who is guilt riden after resorting to all these sinister , hypocritical ,anti national actions , could not but agree.

    Professor Jayampathy Wickremerathne of the Left oriented force , who functioned as a presidential advisor, and made a mojor contribution towards the 19 th amendment has been included in the UNP national list. Field Marshal General Fonseka too has consented to withdraw the nomination under his party and join with the new UNP Front.

    The people’s movement for just society , the Citizens Force, as well as civil and professional associations numbering 49 that united to earn victory for the swan symbol that time have also decided in their entirety to support the UNP led Front with the determination to defeat the Medamulana corrupt brutes led corrupt cronies and crooks.

    Already , leaders of the minority parties , Hakeem , Mano Ganeshan and Digambaram have consented to contest jointly with the UNP.

    At the special convention of the UNP tomorrow (11) at the Campbell park ,all are to be invited officially to join the UNP Front , and on Sunday , all of them are to convene a media briefing .

    Pollonaruwa Pallewatte Gamarala who profusely lied and cheated on the very people who toiled and made supreme scarifices to enthrone him as president , only to finally betray them on a scale that surpassed Judas for its cruelty and atrocity – all for filthy lucre (huge Chinese kickback received) in much the same way as Judas, is expecting to make a special announcement on the 13 th, and to tell before the media that he did not betray after all.

    Lanka e news too is expecting to reveal after that , about his ‘clean’ slate with evidence.

    Buddhism and Hinduism are very close to each other and many Tamils were Buddhists and Gothama Buda is a Hindu himself. We Hindus love to visit Buddhist temples and find same peaceful environment we get in Hindu temples. There is no restriction for anybody to go to a Hindu temple or a Buddhist temple like some other religion. Even killer MR visit Hindu temple regularly. Actually the racism against Hindu Tamils was created for political benefit and some thugs not only Buddhist used that to loot wealth from Tamils. Thanks to LTTE for creating a different era to put a stop to that type of political culture and an advance thank to Singhalese to stop that selfish culture with JR, MR and Co. The future of our beautiful country is lying in the hands of educated(no GLP is an educated fool) good people.

    Pacs,

    In developed countries Governments spend lot of money to create jobs for their own people. Construction industry is the main driver of Job market and economy. I am in the construction/ consulting industry and I am totally against using chines to build roads while so many our own people are unemployed and struggling for food. We need a good Government to look after voters, not their own pocket. Second, we have to train our people to develop their skill, in the west they spend lot of money to train young people who will be our future asset. Please do not encourage stupid politicians like MR to ignore our people from employment and training. When I was working in Srilanka, I have never used my education or I never understood what I was doing to improve the country. We have to change the present culture without wasting time in fighting with Tamils. Thanks to LTTE for giving me an opportunity to come to UK, the worlds only greatest city.

    Even though disappointment over MARA nomination is quite evident, if you look at party politics and size of MARA cronies in UPFA President MS has been left without any other option.
    The responsibility to protect democracy (or rather elect) has been again passed on to the voters, it is we who should make sure that the corrupt don’t get voted back to power irrespective of party.

    President I assume will remain neutral and will lean towards a the coalition formed by UNP. The president’s rule will be strengthen based on who get elected not depending on from which party. As long as people elect non corrupt/moderate politicians President can achieve good governance.

    Now that the Ali Baby and 40 thieves have been cornered in to one cowshed distinguishing the rest has been made easy.
    This is a decisive election,

    People of Sri Lanka will rise to the occasion, though few racists elements will still remain organizations like Babadu/Cobra sena will learn how narrow minded they are.

    Yes Senthil
    Most Tamils. Sinhales and Malays too have sought refuge in the affluent countries and have become rich. Most refugee claims are based on false claims accusing that they have been affected by the action of LTTE. The Singhala Governments encouraged it. They became super rich through people smuggling along with drug smuggling. And the SL benefited with foreign currency remittances. foreign reserved accumulated by refugee remittance was useful to buy arms and to get commission, Everyone had a share of the money remitted by the refugee claimants. Even now every one wants eflux of refugees and wants to thrive on it. The number of refugees claimed as child recruits may be many-fold than the actual number of LTTE caders. Now there is no LTTE. But people at all wants to maintain the presence of virtual LTTE to benefit from.

    Amarasiri,

    I could quite understand your disgust with MY3 with regard to his betrayal.

    But can we give the benefit of the doubt to him. He would have been helpless in the face of unprecedented pressure from all the rogues around him and he may have even avoided a major civil unrest in the country by not giving nomination to MARA. As you have so profusely claimed in these columns about the average IQ of our people, they might have acted so brute under the circumstances.

    I also read in another article that MY3 has given tacit approval for the grand coalition. They say all’s well that ends well.

    Let us see what he has to say on 13th. I am sure he will make a special declaration which will send MARA back to MEDAMULANA, this time burying him permanently, politically.

    Just give it a thought.

      “But can we give the benefit of the doubt to him. He would have been helpless in the face of unprecedented pressure from all the rogues around him and he may have even avoided a major civil unrest in the country by not giving nomination to MARA.”

      The fact of the matter is that Maitripala Sirisna is NOT a Leader and NOT a statesman. Giving benefit of the doubt to a spineless, wimpy, liar, coward, traitor and lost likely bribe taker from Mahinda Rajapaksa and the Chinese, dictates that one should not give the benefit of doubt to such traitors.

    I cannot kick myself enough times because I thought before that MS was a ‘Yuga Purusha’. How could i be so naive to fool myself like that?

    Theories:

    1) MS is being blackmailed by MR using a file he possesses.

    2) MS is a bigger villain and a traitor. It is not the forst time. He betrayed the Appa giving host.

    3) He is sure that MR is going to be defeated 2nd time and that will be the end of his plans.

    4) everything will end in August on HR and war criminal issues against MR. So give him long enough rope to hand himself.

    Pacs,

    Sorry, I did not read all your comments above. Some are very good and I have changed my opinion about you, even though you have a wrong impression about LTTE who were created by resist Singhalese politicians and frequent communal troubles. When ever politicians wanted to punish Tamils, they start communal trouble and feed greedy pigs with arrack and biryani and let free to kill and loot wealth from Tamils in front of army and police animals. We should not forget, many good Singhalese saved many Tamils from death but the percentage is very low. When those Tamils die they cursed srilanke and the result is junk status of the beautiful paradise. Once angre hanuman burnt Ceylon now we do not know want is God’s plan.

    China is funding MR’s election campaign, so that they can carry on with the corrupt deals once he becomes prime minister by hook or crook. They are throwing in millions of rupees to get his party to form a government after Aug 17.

    Voters think about this when you are voting on the 17th Aug…..
